So several people are emailing me recently regarding loans and costs, especially after they have been accepted and are deciding whether or not go through with it.
I don’t know that much about private loans. I do know that a lot of debt sucks and it takes a long time to pay it back. Being consistent is important (maybe $1-2k/month is that is possible!).
Anyway, one student named Jason asked for my help to spread the word that he’s maxed out on his loans and needs help finishing the last 2 semesters!! Here was his email to me:
I am currently about to start 3rd sequence of the NYU accelerated program. Glad your blog is out here. Very well written and insightful.
Got a question for ya….
Any words of wisdom for a student who is facing a brick wall with federal and private student loans. I am a second degree student, so I came into the program with quite a hefty chunk of student loans. First two sequences ate up the remaining available borrowing according to the new federal max aggregate student lifetime educational borrowing.
Right now I’ve applied for several scholarships and have created a GoFundMe crowd funding page (http://www.gofundme.com/HelpJasonPay4NYU-Nursing). If you have any other suggestions or if you were interested in forwarding my story and plea for help with NYU tuition, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much

So there you go. Wish come true. I really do hope that people reading this blog will help him out. I know I will. Caring is giving and what goes around, comes around.
